3 of the Hottest Stocks In the Market – Are They Too Hot?

TradeSmith Research Team

Eleven stocks in my quantitative analysis system have Technical Scores of 91.2… the highest current rating. They have nearly doubled on average since the beginning of November, when this latest rally was just getting under way. And they’re up 73% on average in just the first eight weeks of 2024. The three biggest gainers of the group have more than tripled on average in less than four months. You can guess at least one of the three… and maybe two.

3 Stocks Big Money Is Buying Now

TradeSmith Research Team

My system sniffed out 509 unusal buy signals yesterday – which is Big Money at work. That easily topped the previous high of 456 buys back on Feb. 2, and it blew away all of the buying days during the rally from March through July.

But a lot of those signals probably came from private networks that are completely separate from these exchanges.

Knowing growth has led the recent charge, let’s dig a little deeper and look at five top performers these last five days and run them through our Quantum Edge system to see whether they are likely to continue moving higher.

5 Reasons to Invest Now to Grab Your Share of 2024’s Profits

TradeSmith Research Team

This hasn’t exactly been a smooth year for stocks, but the end result is impressive. The S&P 500 more than doubled historical averages with a 25% pop. All three major indexes hit 52-week highs here in December, with the Dow and Nasdaq even hitting new all-time highs. But the ride to those all-time highs was filled with five sharp moves – up, down, up, down, and up. Fortunately, those last two up moves were monsters.

5 Reasons to Invest NOW… Before the Fireworks Begin

TradeSmith Research Team

August is traditionally a lousy month for stocks – second only to September in terms of terrible performance. Then comes the strongest stretch of the year – by far – for stocks. Now is the time to buy stocks for what I expect will be a fun and profitable finish to 2023.
